About Project Roadblock

Now in its 14th year, Project Roadblock is a multiplatform drunk driving prevention campaign exclusive to local broadcast television stations and is the largest annual station-supported initiative of a single PSA campaign.

Sponsored by TVB, NHTSA, and the Ad Council, Project Roadblock continues to demonstrate local broadcast television’s power to influence, persuade and affect social behavior, as well as TV broadcasters' commitment to the safety of their communities.

In fact, through continued support of Project Roadblock, and in combination with other drinking and driving prevention efforts, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities have decreased 20% from 13,099 in 2004 to 10,497 in 2016. However, fatalities are up 1.7% since 2015, indicating a need for your continued support.

Your help can continue to make an impact in the road to safety.

Note: Every local broadcast TV station is encouraged to join Project Roadblock. You do NOT have to be a TVB member to participate. Support of Project Roadblock does not replace other PSA commitments.
